I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas with some of my favorite punk rock holiday jams!
“I Won’t Be Home For Christmas” (live) – Blink 182. This is an OLD classic. I remember listening to this in middle school all the time. This video marks the first time in a decade that they’ve played it live.
“Christmas Day” – MxPx. This is my personal favorite. Super catchy and fun lyrics make it a great song.
“Right Where You Want Me To Be” – A Day To Remember. This was an interesting song at the time of it’s release. It kind of came out of nowhere (meaning I had no idea they were working on this) and it showed the progression of the band’s sound to more of a “pop punk” style opposed to the much heavier/metalcore style they had on all their records prior. There was quite an uproar from some of their longtime fans, but considering ADTR is arguably the biggest band in the “scene” right now, I think it was a good direction to go in.
“Ex Miss” – New Found Glory. This was on the first Atticus: Dragging The Lake compilation and I was addicted to it right away. I especially love it when they go into a “Jingle Bells” riff in the bridge.
